Discover the Waterways of the ADK

The Adirondack Park's thousands of lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams offer paddlers a chance to explore quiet, out of the way places as well as popular whitewater destinations.

Combine a paddling trip with a visit to a local Adirondack restaurant, and you won't go home disappointed.

In our paddling guide, you'll find tons of information on top paddling sites, a paddling photo gallery, and so much more!
